crash stacks on Windows unittests broken (MINIDUMP
_STACKWALK path translation problem) (Windows Error: [Error 2] The system cannot find the path specified)

There are two bugs here: 1) Something is crashing mochitest and producing a minidump 2) The harness code is failing to execute minidump_stackwalk to print a stack. It looks like perhaps the minidump_stackwalk binary doesn't exist. I pushed an extra print statement to verify if this is the problem: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/ba9c06d83b3e Also, why is this filed in Core: General? It's either a harness problem (and belongs in Testing:Mochitest) or a problem with the build slave/environment (and belongs in mozilla.org:Release Engineering). Nobody looks at bugs in Core: General, so I had no idea this bug existed.

And this got hit again http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showlog.cgi?log=Firefox-Unittest/1256087154.1256087561.13988.gz#err0 WINNT 5.2 mozilla-central test opt mochitests on 2009/10/20 18:05:54 I went to moz2-win32-slave02 and $ ls -l /e/builds/moz2_slave/mozilla-central-win32-opt-unittest-mochitests/tools/breakpad/win32/minidump_stackwalk.exe worked just fine at the msys prompt.
But! There's something interesting here. TEST-UNEXPECTED-FAIL | automation.py | application crashed (minidump found) SUCCESS: The process with PID 3608 has been terminated. MINIDUMP_STACKWALK binary not found: /e/builds/moz2_slave/mozilla-central-win32-opt-unittest-mochitests/tools/breakpad/win32/minidump_stackwalk.exe That printed out *an MSYS path*, but Python is a normal windows program. MSYS is supposed to do path translation on command line arguments, as well as environment variables. Clearly something is going wrong here, since we're getting an MSYS path inside of Python, which it doesn't know how to handle.
And, as usual at this time of the morning, after writing a comment I suspect I see the problem. There's no MSYS involved here. With the packaged unit tests, we simply have Buildbot invoking Python directly, one Windows program to another. Passing MSYS paths in that situation is broken. Can we either make the toolsdir a Windows-style path here: http://mxr.mozilla.org/build/source/buildbotcustom/process/factory.py#2971 (pwd -W should produce a path that looks like c:/foo/bar, which should work with MSYS or Windows programs) or run the packaged unittest steps via MSYS bash (gross, but would solve the problem).

Severity: normal → critical
Summary: build/automation problem: WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the path specified → crash stacks on Windows unittests broken (MINIDUMP_STACKWALK path translation problem) (WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the path specified)
I manually ran some packaged mochitests with MINIDUMP_STACKWALK set to e:/... instead of /e/.... After forcing a crash with ted's crashinject app, I got this: http://people.mozilla.org/~bhearsum/misc/mochitest.log Ted says this looks good, so this patch should fix us up for all of the packaged build cases.

I updated the masters with this patch and kicked a few opt packaged mochitest runs. Hopefully (ha) one will crash.
No point in keeping it open, if a fix is in.
